Board game drive for Helen DeVos Children’s Hospital


Those who donate new board games will be entered in a GrandCon giveaway

DeVos Place, Kent District Library and GrandCon Gaming Convention will host a board game drive at select locations throughout the month of August to benefit the children and families at Helen DeVos Children’s Hospital. Community members can donate new board games for a chance to win three GrandCon badges and three GrandCon. There will be a registration box to enter the GrandCon giveaway at every drop-off location.

Community members can drop off new board games at the following locations:

  • SMG administrative office located inside Van Andel Arena Monday through Friday, Aug. 13 to Aug. 24, from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m.
  • Kent District Library in Grandville on Aug. 11 from 11 a.m. to 4 p.m.
  • Kent District Library in Plainfield on Aug. 18 from 11 a.m. to 4 p.m.
  • Kent District Library in East Grand Rapids on Aug. 25 from 11 a.m. to 4 p.m.

In an effort to keep patients safe, Helen DeVos Children’s Hospital requests that all donated board games be new and easy to sanitize. Suggested games include: Guess Who, Sorry, Connect 4, Trouble, Checkers & Chess, Battleship, Ticket to Ride, UNO, Skip-Bo, Phase 10, Monopoly Deal or regular decks of cards.

GrandCon and DeVos Place staff will personally deliver the donated board games to the children at Helen DeVos Children’s Hospital on Sept. 13 for a kids’ game day.

A portion of all GrandCon proceeds go directly to Helen DeVos Children’s Hospital. GrandCon Gaming Convention will take place at DeVos Place Sept. 14 to Sept. 16. For more information about GrandCon or to purchase GrandCon badges, visit grand-con.com.
